Watch the Trailer to Danny Brown’s New ‘Live at the Majestic’ Documentary

“I’m partying with my family right now,” says Danny Brown, as he overlooks the crowd at Detroit’s Majestic Theatre, one of the marquee concert venues in the rapper’s hometown. Danny looks lively and comfortable—much like the packs of people that showed up to watch him perform—in a video clip taken from the upcoming documentary, Danny Brown: Live at The Majestic. Directed by Andrew Cohn, the film offers a behind-the-scenes look at the live performance, as well as chronicles Danny’s ascent from timid wannabe to widespread acclaim and gives an intimate look into the lives and minds of some of his notoriously loyal fans.

In between scenes of Danny tearing it up on stage, old footage of the MC in cornrows and a bubble coat reminds fans of his earnest beginnings. “I was just saying things that I thought people would like,” he says. “I wasn’t being Danny Brown.”

Intense scenes from the recording sessions that produced his XXX album follow, as one colleague notes that Danny Brown’s success has been like “a meteor [that] just fell out the sky.” For Danny Brown, it’s been a wild six years.

But Danny and his camp’s vantage point isn’t the only one represented in Live at The Majestic. Elsewhere in the trailer, a few of the rapper’s dedicated fans provide insight into why they love the leader of the Bruiser Brigade. “[Danny’s] lyrics just make you feel like you’re not alone,” one young fan says, as he traipses through snow. “The beauty that a simple lyric can bring about in one’s life. It blows my mind.”

Live at The Majestic will release exclusively to Apple Music on November 7, just a couple weeks before Danny holds court at his fourth annual Bruiser Thanksgiving event, featuring co-headliner Lil B, at Club Fantasy in Detroit.

“I love all y’all mu’fuckas,” Danny says to his crowd towards the end of the trailer. The feeling is mutual. Watch the trailer above.
